He realized early on that trust was critical to this mission, and invested time understanding how to design AI systems that are more fair and safe.
Since then, the company has overseen more than 80 AI and ML projects with global clients including Progressive, FirstEnergy, and Penn State University. In the first half of 2022 alone, Pandata closed $1 million in new business. Service offerings include AI discovery and design, AI development, an AI strategy workshop, and general advisory services. The company is founded on building high-performance AI solutions that put humans first.
